[ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions, jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding.
xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com.

tossing half a foot of snow and conditions there are downright dangerous. >> people aren't seeking shelter over the next couple of days, there is a strong chance that we may have one or two or more that actually freeze on the street. >> i worry about the homeless during conditions like that. so the storm is heading east right now. indra petersons, we want to know where is it heading next? what is happening right now? how cold is it? did we say 40 degrees below zero earlier? seriously? >> a little game of where you'd rather be right now? how about maybe great falls where it's negative 16 without the windchill? >> no! >> or maybe 72 in new orleans? you're talking about a 90-degree temperature spread across the country. pretty impressive. that is what we are dealing with. maybe you understand why you call it an arctic blast. pittsburgh, 61 and saturday you're down to 29 degrees. little rock 48. down to 29 and notice billings, yeah, negative 4. that season for them almost 40 degrees below average.
the biggest concern is not even the temperatures. it's really the threat of an ice storm. as we go through the afternoon, we are talking about icing especially from illinois back in through texas and this threat will be with us all through the entire weekend. notice it even spreads as we go in through friday and then into the weekend. the first system kind of makes its way offshore and that is good news. let's talk about what we are expecting as far as snow, rain and ice. rain about 2 inches expected and snow still another 6 inches but the main story is the freezing rain and this is the area we are talking about a threat of over half an inch of freezing rain and that is the concern. will we see power outages as we go throughout the weekend from the heavy ice on the pour lines? the first system and there is a second one behind it for the second half of the weekend. almost identical to the first one and that is going to be the concern as we go through the weekend. just imagine downed power lines and here comes the second system. >> people need to be careful but at least they are forewarned. thank you, indra. 33 minutes past the hour. secretary of state john
kerry in jerusalem with talks with benjamin netanyahu. a busy day of diplomacy. kerry attempting to convince netanyahu the nuclear deal struck with iran is in israeli's best interest. so nice to see you, elise. this is a tall order, right? benjamin netanyahu has said repeatedly, has been very vocal about how opposed he is to this deal. >> reporter: that's right. it's the first time secretary kerry has been meeting with the prime minister since that deal was reached in geneva last month. they have been meeting about three hours and about to come out in the next couple of minutes. you have a pretty oprift betwee this. president obama and secretary kerry felt an interim agreement was the only thing to get from the iranians at this point so they went over the prime
minister's objections and they hope to convince the prime minister to move past the deal and let's work to go on a comprehensive agreement and address the concerns about the nuclear program. >> are they going to work together in order to deal with the concerns that israeli has? they are going to have a voice here in that deal? >> reporter: well, secretary kerry speaks with prime minister netanyahu almost daily and i think both president obama and secretary kerry gave prime minister netanyahu their assurances that israeli will be involved in these scheduletations on how to get this comprehensive deal with iran. the threat, israeli threat of a military strike to go after iran's nuclear program is still out there. obviously, they don't want to do that, so they want to make sure israeli is comfortable with any ultimate deal. >> let's move on here dealing with kerry's only mission on this trip is not that.
he is tying kick-start peace talks between the israeli and palestinians. how is that going? >> reporter: this is his ninth trip, secretary kerry, to the israeli and palestinian territory. in july you remember he gave the israelis and palestinians a nine-month deadline to reach a peace deal. we are about four months in so the clock is ticking and i think it's fair to say there is little progress. today, general john allen who has been working with contrary on israeli security issues, will present some detailed ideas on how israeli security needs, particularly in the west bank, could be addressed in the context of a peace deal with the palestinians. it shows now the u.s. is really putting its own ideas on the table instead of leaving it to the israelis and the palestinians to negotiate because they are not getting very far. after this iran deal i think we can expect a lot of skepticism from prime minister netanyahu and secretary contrary will meet later with palestinians president abbas who will press
his own demands a palestinian state based on the 1967 border are israeli which the settlement which continuous. everywhere secretary kerry looks, a lot of pressure from both sides. >> a lot of work to be done. no doubt about that.

ji. >> both japan and china claim to have sovereignty over that disputed region. according to documents from nsa leaker edward snowden the agency is gathering close to 5 billion records every day on the whereabouts of cell phones worldwide. that means the nsa can track the movements of individuals and map their relationships as well. the agency's database can reportedly store information about hundreds of millions of devices. president obama is turning his attention no to income and equality. he says the federal deficit is under control and doesn't present a serious threat to the economy but he says the gap between the rich and the poor is a different story. the president making a plea to raise the minimum wage to more than $10 and an extension of unemployment benefits. >> we know that we're going to have a greater and greater portion of our people in the service sector and we know that there are airport workers and
fast food workers and nurse assistants and retail salespeople who work their tails off ian are still living at or barely above poverty. and that is why it's well past the time to raise a minimum wage that in real terms right now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. >> republican leaders took issue with the president's approach. house speaker john boehner suggesting mr. obama's policy created the very problems he described. another government shutdown looming next month they are trying to hammer out a budget deal now. republicans and democrats are said to be 100 billion apart with that gap narrowing. republican congressman paul ryan and democratic senator patty murray are heading up those talks. the white house in full holiday mode. first lady michelle obama showing off the decorations. 70,000 visitors expected the next two weeks and treated to two life sized replicas of the
